Tuesday Night Links

Filed under: MUS 1,Wintersession 2011 — jmeschi @ 2:13 pm

Here are links to several items mentioned and/or discussed in class Tuesday night. The last link was mentioned in class last week:

  1. Tom Petty’s Don’t Back Down - the song we heard when discussing phrase analysis.
  2. When going over the practice quiz and how many semitones are in the octave, I mentioned other tuning systems and tried to play an example on my IPad. Unfortunately the example didn’t really give you a good idea of what microtonal music sounds like. Here’s a good example with some further explanation of this type of music.
  3. When discussing “making music”, not just playing everything correctly, I mentioned an amazing young soprano. Her name is Jackie Evancho and here’s the video of her duet with Sarah Brightman I mentioned.
  4. This last link is to a video I mentioned last week when talking about vocal quality of rock singers and how effective some are, even if they might not have “great” voices.
